|Building Up - archived - James E. D. Cline|
Science fiction novel, with two short stories and extensive technical background. First involves building the first earth tether space elevator; the a wheel type mile diameter space station in LEO, then a KESTS to GEO (Kinetic Energy Supported Transportation Structure to Geostationary Earth Orbit) include calculations showing only 7.3 KWh energy is added per pound by moving it from the equator surface up into GEO.
Keywords: science fiction; KESTS; space elevator; Centristation
|Building Up - James E. D. Cline|
Science fiction novel, of the high tech type, in which construction and first use of the anchored tether space elevator, the Centristation wet-launch of the classical wheel-type space station in ow earth orbit, and a KESTS (kinetic energy supported transportation structure) between ground and geostationary earth orbit, are built. Also book contains two short stories and extensive technical background.
Keywords: science fiction; KESTS; space elevator; Centristation
|The Mooncable - A Profitable Space Transportation System (1972) - James E. D. Cline|
A proposal made in 1972 for building an anchored tether space elevator from the lunar surface through the Lagrange1- point toward the Earth, with its weight balanced across L-1. It was to have been built out of lunar-sourced fiberglass, and have a constant stress cross section (tapered)and have electrically conducting tracks that provided dynamic braking toward the earth from L1, to provide electrical energy for lifting more mass up from the surface toward L1.

|Disjointed Podcast #5 - Disjointed Podcast|
Our conversation starts up discussing something which seems to be straight out of science fiction, but maybe not so far of in the future as most might believe - space elevators. We quickly drift off to talking about the physics of machines like this and in a very disjointed manner, quickly move to discussing about constants in physics such as the universal speed limit set by light, which Neutrinos seem to be disregarding...

|DriveTime -- Road Trip: Pacific Northwest (Seattle 2) - Ravi Jain|
Ravi and Sonia continue their summer vacation out in the Pacific Northwest and take a spin around the Bremerton area with the creator of the LiftPort Group, Michael Laine, who gives an update on the development of the space elevator. Yes -- space elevator. 100 year old Russian notes, the Bible, robots and April 2018 are all discussed in a whirlwind episode.

|Orbital Skyhooks - Hans Moravec|
Two parts of computer simulation depicting a dynamic orbital skyhook, a cable in a sub synchronous orbit that rotates to touch the planet surface. The first part shows a touch down and take off of an end of the cable at a hypothetical space port in Africa. The second segment shows an animated diagram of the cable skyhook as it rotates and orbits to "walk" the planet surface. Shot directly off a video monitor - low image quality...
